Our monthly comedy night featuring top acts from the circuit.


As a fifteen-year-old Liverpudlian schoolboy, Simon Bligh was told by his headmaster that he would go to hell. His mum wanted him to be a priest; he wanted to be a plumber. His dad was a mad Catholic Communist; he was a Kung Fu mad Buddhist. Growing up in Toxteth, his childhood was odd, but full of strange passions. Philosophy and Zen, leather trousers and motorbikes. Japan, unarmed combat and stand up comedy. The young Simon loved comedy and, upon seeing a Richard Pryor film in an empty Manchester cinema, he realised his true calling. He knew he should be a comedian. Faced with this revelation, there followed a decade of travelling, teaching and trying to pluck up the courage to ring for open spots. Finally, he did it. He hasn’t looked back since.

with Neil McFarlane, Lea Rose Emery, Carmen Ali and MC: Bobby Freeman
